Sunny Side Up

This past year, I've learned that in one moment, you can be at your lowest point, and in a flash... have the world at your feet. Life is unpredictable, spontaneous, and wild. And in order to keep up, you have to either change the things that make you unhappy, or learn to accept them.

In 2011, I graduated college, completed my first quarter of graduate school, had my first blog giveaway, started dating my first real boyfriend, learned to better cope with a loss, accepted the way my undergraduate years played out, and met a ton of new friends, both in real life, and through blogging. As you can see, with tough times, come good. My challenge for you: think about all the things you've changed and/or accepted this year, and allow yourself to feel proud.

Thank you for all of your love and support! Cheers to the new year! I wish you all the best.
